Young football fans from Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi will compete in the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick Team Championships on Sunday, Dec. 7, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Competition in five age divisions for both boys and girls begins at 7:45 a.m. with the top scorer in each group crowned team champion and eligible for the National Championships, which will be held during an NFL playoff game. All participants launch one punt, one pass and one kick with scores based on distance and accuracy (in feet). The top four scorers in each age group from around the country will qualify as national finalists.
All competitors will be recognized during Sunday's contest against the Carolina Panthers.
NFL Punt, Pass & Kick, which began in 1961, is the nation's largest grassroots sports skills competition. NFL stars, including Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterbacks Troy Aikman and Dan Marino, competed in the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick program as youngsters.
